Anti-dumping

On December 13th, 2007, the Indian Directorate General of Anti-dumping & Allied Duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of float glass, of thickness 2 mm to 12 mm (both thickness inclusive), of clear as well as tinted variety (other than green glass), but not including processed glass meant for decorative, industrial or automotive purposes, from China and Indonesia.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 7005.
 
While initiating the sunset review, the Indian authorities decided on January 4th, 2008 to extend up to January 6th, 2009 the existing definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on November 12th, 2003 by Notification No. 165/2003-Customs (Notification No. 4/2008-Customs, 04.01.2008). For details about the amount of the duty, see Table of Notification No. 165/2003-Customs.
 
On December 2nd, 2008, the Indian Directorate General of Anti-dumping & Allied Duties, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, issued its final findings of the sunset review. It recommended the continuation of the existing anti-dumping measure.
 
On January 6th, 2009, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of float glass imports from China and Indonesia (Notification No. 4/2009-Customs, 06.01.2009). The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in China is USD 133 per metric ton. The amount of the duty imposed on imports originating in Indonesia is USD 81.21 per metric ton, at the exception of the company PT Mulia Glass whose exports are subject to a duty of USD 71.16 per metric ton. This duty is effective for a period of five years.
 
On January 3rd, 2014, the Indian Directorate General of Anti-dumping & Allied Duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, initiated a second sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of float glass imports from China and Indonesia.
 
While initiating the sunset review, the Indian authorities decided on January 23rd, 2014 to extend up to January 5th, 2015 the existing definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on January 6th, 2009 by Notification No. 4/2009-Customs (Notification No. 07/2014-Customs (ADD), 23.01.2014).
 
On July 2nd, 2015, the Indian Directorate General of Anti-dumping & Allied Duties, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, issued its final findings and recommended the continuation of the definitive anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of float glass imports from China. The measure should elapse as far as imports from Indonesia are concerned since there is no likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping.
 
On September 8th, 2015, the Indian Ministry of Finance issued the Customs Notification of extension of the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of float glass imports from China (Notification No. 47/2015-Customs (ADD), 08.09.2015). The amount of the duty is USD 218 per metric ton. This duty is effective for a period of five years.
The anti-dumping measure concerning imports originating in Indonesia expired.
